Seppe Gebruers

Born:

Oblivious to traditional high-performance standards, Seppe Gebruers (1990) was never one to win the Tour de France. To that end he misses a solid training scheme and a sense of calculating opportunism. Instead, Gebruers is more of an attacker than one to dominate the entire race. Furthermore, he rather surrounds himself with a group of equal leading partners than a supporting team of helpers. Playing at half-force is not an option though, as anyone who has witnessed his physical playing style will testify. Each concert is a classic in its own right, not to be set against another hypothetical future ride

Skordatura PE: Empty The Headbin

Read "Empty The Headbin" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The Belgian quarter has altered their name, actually shortened it from Skordatura Punkjazz Ensemble to Skordatura PE. They still are jazz artists playing punk jazz, not just punks playing jazz. There is an important distinction here. You see they can play, no really play. Their Punkjazz is that of Jaco Pastorious, Mike Stern, and Wayne Krantz-- ...
